Puig Roig is the lowest and most northerly of the 1000m summits of Mallorca but also one of the most attractive.
This was a B+ walk from the Paddy Dillion book with a recommended starting point at Mossa gate some 4 miles from Lluc.
It recommends you walk in an anti clockwise direction but to be different we decided to start from Lluc in a clockwise direction.
This way took us down hill into the valley first before becoming Â a classic circular walk around the mountain with excellent views round every corner.
The route also passes the interesting old cave houses of Es Cosconar built under overhanging rocks and still in occasional use
Amazingly the book says you can only do this walk on a Sunday as land owners will only allow you through on that day, we did come across signs saying walkers only allowed on Sundays !!
The path around Puig Roig was on a narrow ledge at times giving great views of the coast, we met many other walkers but all going in the opposite direction to us, we did wonder if we would find out why at some point !!
But all went well and we arrived at Mossa quicker than expected then took yesterday’s route back to Lluc
The hardest part was When Geoff had me climbing over a 6 ft gate to avoid some road walking.
Stupidly I have got myself very sunburnt today in the deceiving mountain wind …
If coming to Lluc its definitely worth staying to do this walk as it has the WOW factor But remember to make sure your here on a Sunday, I am so glad we were !!
Tomorrow we walk to Pollencia on the GR221 🙂
